The Slow Start

It was not the lack
of wind
nor was it
the lack of sun
No sails
were unfurled
the day
all just seemed  the same
unfurled
lacking breeze
it all lacked sun  –
it all just - lacked?
Not – unusual?
Not a day when
one would have
felt
unusual?
The  sailor
a person of the sea?
do they - lack?
What is the “Lack”
perhaps it's
not
the knack?
The knack to
achieve the
completion of the
the
task set
the
the what?
A slow start
the sails
unfurled
the crew lax
and lacking
the fortitude
to sail?
Ah – but when the breeze
lifts the sails
lift – unfurl you
mighty canvas beasts
unfurl and fly
your masters
unfurl and fly
for now the slow
has begun!
